Monday is August 11th.  That's 8-1-1 on the calendar.  8-1-1 is also the number that you can call nation wide to have utility companies locate buried pipes and cables before you dig.   According to a statement from Phillips 66, failure to call before digging results in more than 60,000 unintentional hits a year. 

Always call 8-1-1 before any digging project No matter the type of project - installing a mailbox, putting in a fence, planting trees or shrubbery, building a patio or deck, or excavating a new garden area - make sure to callno less than 2 days prior to digging to have your site properly marked.  Phillips 66 reminds you to call 8-1-1 no less than 2 days before any digging project.
